Symphony Solutions Hosts OWASP Lviv Meetup 2016

LVIV, Ukraine - Sept. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- We are pleased to announce that Symphony Solutions hosts OWASP meetup 2016 Lviv. It is a security event for Devs, QA, Product and Project Managers that has been organized in Lviv, Ukraine for the second time. This year it gathers security experts from Netherlands, Poland and all over Ukraine. Symphony Solutions supports and understands Application Security community and care about code security in their apps. The conference will be held on 16th of September.

The headliner of the conference is Martin Knobloch - one of the most famous and active OWASP members. He was an organizer and inspirer for such events as AppSec-Eu 2015 and AppSec-Eu 2016.

Speakers and topics to be covered:

* Martin Knobloch (NL) – "Don't feed the hippos".

This topic is inspired by Ernesto Sirolli's TED talk "Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!" about failures in the aid program's around the world. Listening to Ernesto Sirolli, there is no way to miss the similarity with the security community trying to tell developers how to write secure code.  This talk points out common failures of the security community when communicating with developers, trying to solve their problems without understanding what their problems really are.
Using the hippo-analogy for security failures, during the talks those '(in-)secure hippos' are identified, advice on how to avoid them are provided, by anecdotes and best practices from the experience of the past 10 years in the security field as a consultant.

* Pawel Rzepa (PL) - "Application Fuzzing"

* Oleksii Misnik (UA) - "USB HID for physical pentest"

* Andrey Loginov (UA) - "First steps into IOT/hardware hacking"
